Physio-Control Lifepak 500 AED Defibrillator Reconditioned and in LIKE-NEW condition BRAND NEW Battery, BRAND NEW defibrillator PADS ONE YEAR WARRANTY
The LIFEPAK 500 by Physio-Control (formerly Medtronic) has been a mainstay AED for thousands of fire, rescue, police, and emergency medical services for many years, and they are still in use today. The LIFEPAK 500 is lightweight and durable, and is still in demand. Features include clear screen messages, voice prompts, and lighted buttons to guide practiced responders or inexperienced users through the rescue operation. The LIFEPAK 500 is also configurable to different energy levels.
The LIFEPAK 500 AED is to be used only on patients in cardiopulmonary arrest. The patient must be unconscious, not breathing normally, and showing no signs of circulation (for example, no pulse, and/or no coughing, no movement) before the device is used to analyze the patient's ECG rhythm. With Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes, the specially configured biphasic LIFEPAK 500 AED may be used on children who are less than eight years old or who weigh less than 25 kg (55 lb).
The optional and configurable features of the LIFEPAK 500 AED are designed to meet a variety of protocol needs. Authorized operators of this AED should always use the AED in accordance with local protocols.
The LIFEPAK 500 AED is available with one of two defibrillation waveforms: monophasic or biphasic. For a description of each defibrillation waveform, refer to page 5-16 and page 5-20. The LIFEPAK 500 AED control and display functions are the same for either defibrillation waveform.
The LIFEPAK 500 AED uses disposable QUIK-COMBO™ pacing/defibrillation/ECG electrodes, with or without the REDI-PAK™ preconnect system, and FAST-PATCH® disposable defibrillation/ECG electrodes.
The use of these electrodes allows rapid transfer of care to other devices that also use the same type of Medtronic electrodes.
Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes can be used only with a biphasic LIFEPAK 500 AED that has been modified specifically to accept these electrodes. (Refer to Item 4, Cable Connector on page 2-3.) Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes are not transferable to manual defibrillator/monitors and are not compatible with the QUIK-COMBO Therapy Cable (refer to Appendix D)
The operator controls AED operation with two or three top-panel buttons (ON/OFF, ANALYZE [optional], and SHOCK). For LIFEPAK 500 AEDs that do not have an ANALYZE button, the AED operates in AUTO ANALYZE 2 mode (refer to page 2-9).
The AED guides the operator through operating procedures with a combination of:
• Voice prompts
• Flashing LEDs
• Screen messages
The screen messages appear on a two-line liquid crystal display (LCD). Other LCD information includes:
• Real-time clock
• Cumulative shock counter
• Status and service messages
• CPR countdown timer
The LIFEPAK 500 AED operates in two modes: ECG analysis and Continuous Patient Surveillance System (CPSS). During analysis, the AED indicates if it detects a shockable or nonshockable rhythm. The CPSS, which is active when the AED is not performing an analysis, automatically monitors for a potentially shockable rhythm.
The LIFEPAK 500 AED includes a patented system that detects motion. When motion that could distort the ECG rhythm occurs, the ECG data is automatically excluded from analysis by the motion detection system.
The LIFEPAK 500 AED digitally records patient data, including ECG rhythm and delivered shocks. A digital audio recording of scene activity is available as an option. Recorded data may be transferred by direct connection to a printer or computer or by a modem to a remote computer. Three optional, Microsoft® Windows®-compatible data management software programs are available. The Data Transfer™ 500 program transfers, stores, and prints AED reports. The QUIK-VIEW™ 500 data review program includes all of the Data Transfer 500 functions and the capability to review ECG and audio data on a computer. The CODE-STAT™ Suite data management system provides comprehensive and varied data storage, review, and reporting capabilities for quality assessment and system performance analysis
